Friday After Thanksgiving Chain Reaction

Friday, November 25, 2016

This year is our XIXth Friday After Thanksgiving chain reaction, so the theme is symmetry!

What is the Friday After Thanksgiving (F.A.T.) Chain Reaction? A grand event that could only happen at MIT! Participants link their chain reaction devices together forming one mega chain reaction—set off at the end as the event's thrilling culmination. More than 1,500 people attend this fun, all-ages event each year.

Check the MIT Events calendar for workshops and demonstrations throughout the year, and as November approaches, register as a spectator or participant.

Making a chain reaction allows people to explore their own creativity and see how their unique contraptions relate to a larger whole. No matter how unique the devices, inevitably, with a little string and duct tape, they all work together beautifully.
